People! We found a Parisian Home in Manila!

Designed by Architect Ed Ledesma and Interior Designer Lizzie Ledesma, this home embraces the elements of traditional French-Parisian design. And yes, it is located in Manila. The home has a lot of moldings, luxurious textures, contemporary furniture, and (of course) curated art.

“My wife was the driving force of the design,” shares the man of the house when asked on who was responsible for the home’s main design directive. He jokingly adds that he was just in charge of the funding.

One of the main highlights of the home is the area leading to the powder room where a sculpture by Jinggoy Buensuceso holds court.

Floor to ceiling windows in the living room let natural light in and provide a refreshing view of the greenery outside. Furniture pieces from Barbara Barry are placed for that Parisian-American glam look.

In the formal dining area, a round table can accommodate 12 guests with a great backdrop of the garden, thanks to the big windows installed by architect Ed Ledesma.

“We are happy with everything, the design, the space, the layout, the quality; it was all well-thought of,” the happy homeowner adds.

The formal kitchen is given a luxe touch with clean lines and a muted color palatte. An island is placed for the family that likes to entertain their guests
